This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you.

public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying.

because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other

SiHCE this Annual was first undertaken, twenty-two years have 
passed away, eight administrations have been summoned to 
the councils of the Sovereign, six parliaments have been 
elected, and five have been dissolved. Within this period imi- 
tators and plagiarists without number have too often sought 
to intercept the just rewards of an original design, and to 
sustain a precarious existence by borrowing almost every 
feature of tjrpography, language, and decoration. But the turn 
of mind which dictated spoliation was naturally incapable of 
impartiality; and those who appropriated without hesitation 
the outward features of a successful plan contributed at least 
one item to their compilations— the taint of political bias. It is 
not surprising therefore that this volume, which, during every 
ministerial vicissitude since the passing of the Reform Bill, 
has aimed at avoiding party tendencies, should have succeeded 
in acquiring public support; and that it should once more 
appeal to a just and generous body of readers with the con- 
fidence of an enlarged experience and the sanguine energy of 
a renewed life. 

To describe in any preface or introduction the kind of in- 
formation which may be found in these pages is now fortunately 
a needless task ; every reader who is not already well acquainted 
with its purposes and characteristics may be safely referred to 
the Table of Contents for the shortest exposition of its objects 
and the strongest evidence of its utility.

PART 11. 


ADJOURNMENT— See Inteiruptlon of the Sittings of Parliameiit. 

AMENDMENT.— See Order. 

AVOIDANCE OP A DECISION.— When a motion has been made upon 
which the House happens to be unwilling to come to a rote, there are 
formal modes of avoiding a decision, amongst which are passing "to the 
other orders," or moving " the previous question." The former means, 
that the House should— casting aside and taking no further notice of the 
matter then before it— proceed to the other business appointed for that 
day ; the latter, that a vote be previously taken as to the expediency of 
coming to any decision on the question raised. If ''the previous question*' 
of expediency be negatived, the motion to which it referred is only gotten 
rid of for the time, whereas a direct negative to the motion itself would 
be a proscription of it for the remainder of the Session, as well as a 
denial of its principle. With respect to a Bill, moving that it «be read 
this day six months," or this day three months, is a mode of throwing it 
out without coming to an express declaration against the principle of 
the measure. 

BILLS (PiUVATE).— These are chiefly introduced to enable private ind i 
viduals, associaied together, to undertake works of public utility at their 
own risk, and, in a degree, for their own benefit ; but there are other pri- 
vate bills, as those of naturalization, change of name, divorce, or for per- 
fecting titles to estates, fire. Generally speaking, expenses, including 
the fees, attendant upon a private bill amount to BOO/., and frequently to a 
ich larger sum. The fees on a bill for the naturalization of a foreigner 
limited to 100/. The class of professional gentlemen who act as solici- 
> in promoting private bills are called Parliamentary Agents. 

IILLS (PUBLIC).— A biU ii the draft or skeleton of a statnte. Any bill 
ich the Lords can originate may be introdnced and laid on the tai)l« by 


ny iadhridHal peer without the preyioiu permissioo of the House; bvt in 
tke Ooonaoiu no bill can be brought io unless a motion for leare be pre. 
TioiuljacTeed to. Permission having been granted, three or four members 
He appointed to prepare the bill. It is then bmnght i^and rea da first tim«, 
Titboat amendment or debate, and a day appointed for the second reading, 
^eriaaaly to which it is printed and a copy fomished to every member. 
Ihe bill, after the second reading, is referred to a Committee of the 
whole House, when its details are considered, as its principles wert 
npon each of its several readings. Members are at liberty to discuss its 
principle on any of its stages, but no one is considered to have de- 
clared decisively in favour of its principle unless he support by his 
vote its second reading. In Committee the bill is debated clause by 
clause, the blanks left for names, dates, nature and amount of penal* 
ties, &C. are filled up, and sometimes the bill entirely new-modelled. 
The blanks, as they are called, which are usually filled up in italics, are 
agreed to without a question being put, unless a member should propose 
to alter them. The next proceeding is, that the Chairman of the Com- 
mittee should make a report to the House of the changes that the bill 
has undergone, which he does by presenting a copy of it to the Speaker 
in its altered form. The report of the Committee is agreed to without 
discussion, the bill is ordered to be printed, and it is then read a third 
time, when any further amendments can be made. If a liew clause b« 
added, it is called a rider. The last question but one is, that the " bill do 
pass;** after this nothing remains except to determine its title, which 
used to be a general one for all the acts passed in the Session, but in modem 
times distinct titles are used for each statute. During the progress of a bill 
the House may divide on the following questions : Ist , on the second reading ; 
Sod, that it be committed; Srd, that the report of the committee be received ; 
4th, or that the bill be reH»mmitted: 5th, that it be read a third time ; 6th, 
that it do pass ; 7th, the title of the bill. These are quite exclusive of any 
divisions in Committee, or any amendments, or of any clauses added 
to or expunged from the measure in or out of the Committee. Altera, 
tions are not asually proposed in a bill until after its principle has 
been disposed of on the second reading. Immediately after the pass- 
ing of a bill, the permanent Chairman of Committees in the case of 
bills introduced by the Government, or the mover of the bill in other 
cases, takes it and proceeds, accompanied by a few supporters of the 
measure, to convey it to the bar of their Lordships* House, desiring 
their concurrence, where it passes through the same forms as in the 
Commons. If the bill be rejected, no (Urther proceedings ensue. When 
the Lords agree with the Commons in the principle of the measure, but 
differ on matters of detail, a conference usually follows between members 
deputed from each House, who generally succeed in ai^ustlng the **'- 



ferencei but if both Hotucs remain ioflexible, the bill is dropped. Tbe 
same proceedings are adopted mutatis mutandis vhen the bill originates 
in the Upper House. Acta of amnesty are read once only in each House. 
The bill having thus passed both Honses, remains with the Lords, except 
in the case of a bill of supply, which is sent back to the Commons, to be 
by them presented at the bar of the Lords to the Suvereigv or the rojml 
Ciommissioners. The assent of the Crown is the final proceeding which 
coDTerts a bill into an Act of Parliament. (See " Royal Assent.") 

BUDGET (THE).— The Chancellor of the Exchequer mRkes one general 
■tatement every year to the Honseof Commons, which isintended to present 
a compretaensire view of the financial condition of the ooantry. Some- 
times there are preliminary, or supplemental, or occasional speeches; 
but the great general statement of the year has. for a long time past, bei n 
quaintly called '*the Budget," titxm the French bougetts, by a common 
figure of speech, putting the name of that which incloses, to signify the 
thing contained. The annual speech known by that apjiellation embraces 
R review of the income and expenditure of the last year, as compared 
with those of preceding years; remarks upon the financial prospects 
of the country; an exposition of the intended repeal, modifications, 
or imposition of taxes during the session; and a detail of the public ex- 
penditure dnzlng the current period, with its grounds of Justifies tion. 

CABINET.— The government of a state or community is understood to 
signify the exercise of supreme authority, and includes the executive, the 
legislative, and the Judicial powers ; but in popular acceptation it means 
only the first of these, the higher and more immediate Ainctions of which 
are exercised by the Cabinet, a select body in whom, for the time being, 
the whole of the royal authority is vested. Its members all belong to the 
Privy Council, but do not include a tithe of that body. The Cabinet is 
composed of the more eminent portion of the Administration, but it does 
not constitute more than a fourth part of those whom a change of ministry 
deprives of office, the persons included in that council being rarely less 
than ten or more than fifteen. The Cabinet being more immediately re- 
sponailAe for the conduct of public affairs, their deliberations are always 
considered confidential, and kept secrereven ft^om their colleagues, who 
are less exalted in office. The distinguished individual who fills the situa- 
tion of First Lord of the Treasury, and combined with it sometimes that 
' Chancellor of the Exch/eqner, is the chief of the ministry, and therefore 
ihe cabinet : he is usually styled, the "Premier," or " Prime Minister," 
t more properly designated as " the head of her Majesty's government." 
is at hisimmediate recommendation that his colleagues are appointed; 
d, with hardly an exception, he dispenses tbe patronage of the crown 


Every cabinet includes the following high offlcen:— The Pint Lord of the 
TresMiry, the Lord Chancellor, the Lord President of the Conocil, the Lord 
Priry Seal, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, and the three Secretaries of 
State. SeTeral other ministerial fanetionaries, however, hare seats in the 
cabinet; nerer less than three, and rarely so many as eight or nine of this 
latter dass, are called to that station. Their offlces are as follow :— Chief 
Ofwmlmiioner 6t Woods and Forests, Chancellor of the Duchy of Lan- 
caster, First Lord of the Admiralty, President of the Board of Controul, 
President of the Board of Trade, Secretary at War, Paymaster General of 
the Forces. Master of the Mint, Judge Adrocate-General, Pbstmaster- 
General, Master-General of the Ordnance, Chief Secretary for Ireland, 
Chief Justice of the Queen*s Bench.* The selection usually falls upon 
those amongst the latter mentioned functionaries, whose rank, talents, 
reputation, and political weight, render them the most usefU auxiliaries, 
or whose services, while in opposition, may have created the strongest 
claims to the honours of the cabinet. It has occasionally happened that 
a peer possessing high character and influence accepts a seat in the cabinet 
withoat undertaking the labours and responsibility of any particular 
oflce. Altbough this select conni'.il has now been regarded during ceveral 
generations as an essential part nf our polity, yet it still continues to be 
unknown to the law. The names of the noblemen and gentlemen who 
compose it are never oiBciaUy announced to the public. No record is kept 
of ita resolutions or meetings, nor has its existence ever been recognised 
by any act of pariiament. (See Crown, Executire.) 

Commons this olBcer— always a member— is elected by the House on the 
assemUing of every new Parliament. When the House is in committee on 
bills introduced by the government, or in committee of ways and means, 
or supply (see Committee of Supply), or in committee to consider prelimi- 
nary resolutions, it is his duty to preside ; he sits, not in the Speaker's 
chair, but at the table in the seat of the Clerk of the House. On divisions, 
when the numbers happen to be equal, he gives the casting voice, but in 
committees he never o:herwise votes. In August 1854 it was, by a reso- 
lution of the House, decided that, during the unavoidable absence of 
the Speaker, this olHcer should preside in his stead, being only so ap- 
pointed, however, from day to day. In the Lords, the Chairman of Com- 
mittees of the whole House is elected by the House every Session ; he 
usually holds in addition the office of I>epnty Speaker of the House of Lords.

CHILTERN HUNDREDS.— An acceptance of " the ChiHern Hundreds* 
i» a form which has now no other meaning than that the Member accepting 
resigns his seat. No office, having emolument attached, can be conferred 
by the Cruwn on a Member of the Hoase of Commons withoat his thereby 
vacating his seat, and it is only by obtaining office that a Member can rid 
himself of the duties which any t>ody of constituents may ia^>ose even with- 
oat his consent ; the Crown, therefore, for the convenience of the House 
at large, is always ready to confer on any Member " the Stewardship of her 
Majesty's Chiltern Hundreds, the Stewardship of the Manor of Poynings, 
of East Hendred and Northstead, or the Escheatorship of Mnnster ;'* sine, 
cares which he continues to hold till some other Member solicits a similar 
accommodation. Many offices, howeVer, though in reality government 
appointments, are not directly conferred 1^ the Crown, bat by the heads of 
the several departments; of this number are certain of the British Mini- 
sters accredited to Foreign Courts, and some of the Deputy Secretaries. 
The acceptance of such offices does not necessarily deprive a member of his 
seat in the House of Commons. 

CLERK OF THE HOUSE OF COMMONS.— "The Clerk of the Commons 
House of Parliament" holds an office of great trust and importance. He, 
with two assistants, sits at the upper end of the table. The Crown ap- 
points him by letters patent, and, when necessary, he can appoint a 
deputy. The appointment of the other clerks in the service of 4he House 
is vested in him. It is his duty to make minutes, not of the arguments 
held in the House, but of the decisions at which it arrives— in other words, 
to record its votes, resolutions, addresses, orders, reports, divisions, and 
all other proceedings in which it may be engaged; to see that they are 
correctly printed and distributed to the members, to read aloud all such 
documents as the House may order to be read, to perform the duty (without 
taking the chair) of president or moderator during the choice of a Speaker, 
putting a que..»tion and directing a division in the same manner as a 
chairman would. 

COMMITTALS.— In common with courts of law and equity, the Houses 
of Parliament can punish all contempts of their authority or disobedience of 
their mandates. Each House is armed with power to repress any aggres- 
sion committed upon their rights, or any interference with their privileges : 
'lut in the case of the Commons the operation of this power is limited to 
lie session of Parliament, committals by that House being invalidated 
y a prorogation. Either House can delegate to a Committee the power 
r sending for papers and records, and of enforcing the attendance of 
ecessary witnesses. 


COMMITTEES-Are. first, those of the whole Hoiim, which may be 
to cuiuideT of certain Resolatloxu, as to the nature of which considerable 
Utitnde prevails; or the House resolves itself into such Committee to con- 
rider the details of a Bill, the principle of which may be discussed at any 
or all of ita other stages; or there may be Committees for financial purposes 
« those of "Supply," or "Ways and Means" (which see). Seconaiy, 
There are Select Committees chosen by ballot or otherwise for some specific 
purpose— the numbers composing such bodies seldom exceed twenty or 
thirty members; occadoually these are declared Committees of Secrecy. 
Thirdly, Election Committees, which are judicial tribunals, appointed to try 
the merits of controverted elections— these are always chosen by ballot. 
Fourthly, Committees on private Bills (which see). When the whole House 
is in Committee, the Speaker vacates the Chair, the Mace is placed under 
the table ; and some other Member is called on to preside, who sits in the 
Kilt of the senior Clerk. For Committees of Supply, and Ways and Means, 
and Bills introduced by Ministers, there is a Chairman, who receives a 
salary. (See Chairman of Committees.) 

CONFERE N CE.— This is a species of negotiation between the two Houses 
of Parliament, conducted by managers appointed on both sides, for the 
purpose of producing concurrence, in cases where mutual cnufcnt is neces- 
sary; or for the purpose of reconciling differences which may have arisen. 
If the conference be upon the subject of a bill depending between the two 
Houses, it must be demanded by that House which, at the time of asking 
the conference, is in possession of the bill. It is the sole privilege of the 
Lords to name the time and place for holding a conference, no matter by 
which House it may have been demanded. Reasons in writing for the 
coarse resolved to be taken, are usually furnished to the managers on both 
sides, in which case it is simply called '* a conference." Should this proceed- 
ing fail, a " free conference" must be held, which gives an opportunity 
Tor the managers individually, and unrestrained by any precise form of 
argument, to urge such reasons as in their judgment may best tend to 
influence the House to which they are addressed. A free conference is 
usually demanded after two conferences have been holden without effect. 
After one free conference, none other but tree conferences can be held 
touching the same subject. In May, 1851, it was agreed both by Lords 
aad Commons, that reasons respecting differences of opinion on any bill, or 
other proceeding, might be communicated to eilher House by message from 
the other, and that no conference need take plai-.e unless specially requested. 
At all conferences, the managers on the part of the Upper House are 
seated and wear their hats; those for the Commons stand uncovered. The 
Speaker quita the chair of the House during the absence of managers 
Attending a conference. 


CROWN^->The prerogatives and Auctions of tbe Crown may be sommed 
np atider the following heads:— To give or reftise to bills the "Royal 
Assent " (which see) ; to cause the dae administration and execution of 
the laws ; to act on behalf of the whole community in its intercourse with 
Foreign States, and as a part of that, to declare war or conclude peace ; to 
direct the naval and military force of the country i to administer the public 
rerenne ; to prorogue or dissfdve Parliament ; to create peers; and tn coin 
money. The monarch is the head of the Church ; the source of justice and 
of metcy, of all offices, honours, emoluments^ and chartered rights. Bat in 
every case the sovereign acts by ministers who are amenable to Parliament, 
and the choice of those ministers is the only prerogative, which can be 
constitutionally exercised without responsible advisers; but even over 
this, there is much Parliamentary controul, for the royal favour can have 
no practical elTect, unless it rest upon men whose characters and measures 
prove generally acceptable to both Houses (see Cabinet). 

DISSOLUTION.— See Interruption of the Sittings of Parliament. 

E9TATE OF PARLIABISNT.-Strictly speaking, the three *'EsUtes of 
the Realm" consist of, Ist, the Lords Spiritual ; 2nd, the Lords Temporal ; 
8rd, the Commons. Parliament fUIly assembled consists of the King, with 
the two estates of the peerage, sitting in one House, and the Commonalty 
by their representatives standing below the bar. But instead of the 
three estates of the realm, we are accustomed to speak of the three "^ 
branches of the legislature. Neither of the Houses ever deliberates in 
the presence of the Sovereign, nor will either of them permit any allusion 
in debate to his sentiments. The King, Lords, and Commons, in their 
united charactrr.exercise none but the legislative functions. Taken together, 
they are the Pailiament, and there can be no act of Parliament in which 
they do not concur. (See Royal Assent.) In addition to this legislative 
character, common to the three, each has separate functions peculiar 
to itself. In the Sovereign resides the whole executive authority. 
The House of Lords exercises judicial authority as a court of dernier 
resort, and as a tribunal tu which great officers of state, impeached by 
the other House, are amenable. 

BXECUTIYE.— The following comprise the principal departments of the 
'xecntive government:— The Treasury, the Admiralty, the War OfBce, (he 
rdnance, the Home Office, the India Board, the Colonial Office, the Board 
' Trade, the Foreign Office, the Board of Woiks and Public Buildings, 
le Mint, the Office of the Privy Seal, the Office of the Duchy uf Lan- 
ister, and the Irish Office. Those offices which are principally oi 


exchisiTely occupied with tke ooHectioa of the'pnblic reTemie are the 
Cutonu, the Excise, the Stampst the Post OBce, the Offlce of Aasened 
Ttxrs, the Crown Lands, &c The public Itanctionuiea to whom the oon- 
dnct in cliicf of these aereral depnTtments is entrasted, together with 
the great officers of the royal household, constitute what is termed 
the Ministry or Administration.* Its members rary according to cir- 
cumstances, rarely exceeding fifty or sixty persons. They hold their 
ofices, not like the judges, quamdiu bene te ge^aerint, but durante 
btjte plaetto—n. tenure which was anciently nni versa 1, and still prevails 
in the great minority of offices. The Administration usi^Iy resign when 
they lose the confidence of either House of Parliament ; or they may be 
djxmisaed by the Sovereign, and it is competent for either House to 
present an address to the throne, inrayfiig theit dismissal. The members 
of a goremment are understood to concur in principles of legislation and 
policy, and co-operate in Parliament upon all matters not specifically 
agreed on as open Questions. Their acknowledged chief is the First Lord 
of the Treasury. When a Commoner, he frequently though not necessarily 
eombines with that office the Chancellorship of the Exchequer ; of late 
years, howerer. these tw o offices hare been k^t distinct ; the last occasion 
on which they were united was in the year 1836. 

FINANCB.-8ee Budget. "^^"'^'^ 

HOUSE OF COMMONS.— This branch of the Legislature has not bat in 
St. Stephen's chapel, since (be year 1834, when that building was de- 
stroyed by fire. From 1835 to 1851 the representatives of the people 
held their sittings in what had previously been the House of Lords, but 
in 1862 that portion of the Palace at Westminster was taken down, and 
the House of Commons, in the early part of the same year, entered into 
occupation of a chamber not far from the north end of the Palace, built 
expressly for their use, and in which their sittings are now held. That 
which is called the strangers* gallery is placed at the lower end, opposite 
the chair, and commands a ftill view of the House. Behind the chair is a 
gallery appropriated to the Reporters, while the side galleries are exclu- 
sively for Members. Persons obtain access to the " strangers'gallery* through 
the order of a member, given in writing oTvivd voce. According to ancient 
practice, the House always adjourns to 1 u'clodc in the morning ; and should 
the Speaker take the chair (forty members being present \) at any time be- 
tween that hour and four in the afternoon, the appointed proceedings may

immediatdy commence; othenrise no btuiness can, on that day, be trans' 
acted, and the Houae will stand adyonrned to 10 o'clock on the follo-w^itiff 
morning. Down to 1838, the practice was, that a few minntes before 4 
o'clock the Speaker took his seat at the table, the Chaplain read prayers^ 
the strangers' gallery ^as then opened, the Members present were counted, 
and, as forty generally attended, business began. The fact important to 
visitors of the House was this, that any Member might, at any time after 
12 o'clock, call upon the door<keeper to open the gallery— a course which 
Members frequently adopted for the accommodation of their private friends 
whenever a great debate was expected— hence it became difficult to conjec- 
ture how early the gallery might be filled; but generally speaking it was 
not opened till 4 o'clock. During the Session of 1838, a material change 
took place, the House sitting tram. 12 till 8 o'clock in the afternoon, and 
resuming at 6. This continued to be the practice in 1834, and was occa- 
sionally resorted to in 1]B35. At first the early sittings were confined to 
private business and petitions ; but, towards the latter end of the Session , 
public business commenced at noon, and was continued generally till lon^ 
after midnight, with the exception of the hours fhim 3 to 6. For some 
years past, however, the old practice of not commencing business till 4 in 
the afternoon has been generally observed, with the exception of Wed. 
nesdays, when the House rits flrom 12 till 6. The House does not usually 
sit on Saturday, but on Friday resolves that at its rising, ** this House will 
adjourn till Monday." All Peers, distinguished foreigners, &c. are accom- 
modated below the bar, besides those who are fortunate enough to obtain 
Orders from the Speaker. 

HOUSE OF LORDS.— The strangers' gallery, as in the Commons, is not 
opened till after prayers, and strangers are excluded during divisions. 
Their Lordships frequently sit daring the day as a Court of Appeal, but do 
nut usually assemble in their legislative capacity until five in the after- 
noon, unless upon the opening or closing of the session, whioh generally 
takes place at two o'clock ; or when the royal assent is to be given to Bills 
by commission, on which occasion their tiordships meet earlier tban the 
customary hour, but for this purpose no precise time has been established 
by usage. While sitting in their judicial capacity, the House, like other 
courts of justice, is open to the public. 

ceedings of the legislature may be interrupted or suspended either by ad- 
'onrnment, prorogation, or dissolution. Adjournment, as the term imports, 
s a postponement of the sitting or proceedings of either House of Parliament 
rom one time, to another specified for the reassemblage. When the sittings 
f both Houses are interrupted by royal authority, it is called prorogation. 


Dissolntion pats an end to the repTeseiatBtive character of the indiridnaU, 
who at the tiniecompoEe the House of Commons, u well as to that of the six* 
teen Scottish Peers, and Parliament cannot again assemble until after a 
xeno-al election. The power of adjonrnment is inherent in each House 
respectively, and no precise restraints upon this power are prescribed by 
the constitution. Either House may interrupt or postpone any debate, defer 
the considention of any measure, or altogether adjourn its sittings. The 
Lords frequently adjourn " during pleasure," which means that the Lord 
Chancellor or other Speaker of the House may, in the exercise of his 
discretion, take his seat on the woolsack, two other Peers being present, 
and cau«e business to proceed at any hour within the day on which such 
adjournment " during pleasure* taken place, otherwise their Lordships' 
House will stand adjourned to the usual hour on the following day; but 
nsage has fixed lire o'clock, p.m., as the time for resaming after an 
adjournment *' during pleasure." The Commons, on the contrary, always 
atl/oum to a time specified. The Speaker of that House may, in confor- 
mity with the previously expressed wish of the body over which he pre- 
sides, leave the chair during any number of hours; but such proceeding is 
merely regarded as a temporary suspension of business, and not called an 
adjoornment. (^ee House of Commons.) The adjournment of one 
House is no adjournment of the other. The Crown may, pending an 
adjoomment, summon by proclamation, either House or both ; and may 
direct either or both Houses to adjourn to any particular day, which 
direction has always been obeyed to the letter; but some Members, 
and even some writers of authority, have denied the existence of such 
a prerogative, yet it has been frequently exercised, and never resisted. 
It is contrary, however, to modern nsage. An individual member may for 
the time interrupt the progress of business, by successive motions of 
adjoammcnt, which may be repeated indefinitely; but the adoption of this 
course rarely has the effect of delaying proceedings for more than a single 
day. In Committee, to move that the Chairman report progress is equiva- 
lent to moving that the debate be then adjourned. Adjonrnment does not 
close the session ; prorogation does not terminate the Parliament ; the 
former is an act of either House; the latter an act uf the Crown, the dura- 
tion of which may be subsequently extended or curtailed, according to the 
royal pleasure. All unfinished proceedings are quashed by prorogation ; 
but during an adjonrnment they remain in statu quo. A member 
who moves the adjournment of a debate or is addreseiug the House 
at the time of adjournment is said to be in possession of the House, 
and can speak again \*hen the sittings are resumed. When Com- 
juittees of the whole House adjourn, however, this rule docs n«t 
prevail. Prorogation never extends beyond eighty days (see Privileges 
of Parliament), but tttA prorogations may take place ttom time to time '- 
proclamation, and conUnue to be renewed tUl it is intended that P 


ment shoald really aMemble for tb« despatch of InuineM. The Crown, by 
proclamation, may, Dotwithstanding a prorogation, inmmon Parliament 
on giving fourteen days* notice. Diflsolntion is the ciWl death of the 
Parliament, and may be effected by the pleasure of the Crown, by the 
demise of the Crown, or by length of rime. The existence of a Parlia- 
ment cannot be prolonged, even by the authority of the monarch, for a 
greater period than seven years ; and however recently elected, it mast 
expire in six months at most from the demise of the Crown; bat, of course, 
it may be dissolved by the Sovereign in a less )ieriod than six months 
from the death of his predecessor. If Parliament at the time of the Sove> 
reign's death be separated by adjoumment nr prorogation, it must as- 
semble immediately. If no Parliament be then in existence, the monbers 
of the last must again meet and may serve as a Parliament for six months, 
unless sooner prorogued; and so much importance appears to be attached 
to an instant assemblage, that upon the demise of the Crown even the inter- 
rention of Sunday is not permitted to delay the meeting of both Houses. 

LORD HIGH CHANCELLOR.— This distinguished flinctionary being 
keeper of the great seal, is by prescription Speaker of the House of Lords, 
and is usually a Peer. When royal commissions are issued for opening the 
Session, for giving the royal assent to bills, or for proroguing Parliament, 
the Lord Chancellor is always one of the Commissioners, and reads the 
royal speech upon the occasion. When the Sovereign opens or closes the 
Session in person, the Lord Chancellor stands on the right of the throne, 
and hands to the Monarch the speech opening or terminating the annual 
labours of the Legislature.

NEWSPAPER REPORTfNG^-A century ago there was no publication 
which could properly be said to contain a satisfactory account of parliamen- 
tary proceedings; and even within the recollection of many persons no-vr 
alire the debates were but very imperfectly reported. From the commence- 
ment of the American war, however, till the year 1814,a (Toifua/ improTe- 
ment took place in the publication of 4ebates, until at length the art of the 
Reporter, and the business of the Publisher, were prosecuted with a degree 
of success, the effects of which will continue to be felt so long as Areedom and 
civilization exist in England. When the oloseof the war in isi 6 diminished 
at once the supply and the importanocQf foreign intelligence ; when the 
public attention became directed with flUnost ^solnsive anxiety to iom^*- 


tie ifiin, tke paMicatkm of Parliamentary debate* appeared to beoone as 
oigect of natioBal importance, and in tlie cotirse of a few years acramed itc 
vrt$ent lull, detailed, and accarate character. It is contrary to the stand* 
iafforderc of tioth Houses that any strangers should be present, and a* 
iaditidnal member can demand that the order be enforced ; thepabUcationy 
therelbre, of debates is held to t>e theoretically a breach of priTilege; bat 
ii modem times, if any member were repeatedly to insist npon the ex 
ciasion of '* strangers," as all are called who neither are members nor officers 
of the Hoiue, there can be no doubt that this abase of the privilege mast 
Indto snch a modificaticm of the standing order as would deprive indi. 
ridnal members of any controul over a matter so interesting to the nation, 
whose represeBtatires and servants they are, fh>m whose pleasure their 
Puiiamentary existence and authority are derived, and by whom that Autho- 
rity would doubtless be speedily withdrawn, were any attempt madeto carry 
on the bnsinesa of the public without publicity. Secret deliberations hare 
been so long renounced, that the right of the public to be present through 
tkeir agents, the Reporters, is as clearly established now as if no theoretical 
privacy had ever existed. The process of Parliamentary reporting, and the 
qoaUfications of those by whom the task is performed, cannot be adequately 
dncrit>ed within the narrow limits of this article, but it is hoped that the 
reader noay be enabled to form some idea of both from the following brief 
ratline. Every publication not copying from, or abridging any other, but 
iriving original reports, keeps one of a series of Reporters constantly in 
the> gallery of the Lords and another in the Commons. These, like 
lentinels, are at stated periods relieved by their colleagnes, when they 
take advantage of the interval to transcribe their notes, in order to be 
■ ready again to resume the duty of note-taking, and afterwards that of 
transcription for -the press. A succession of Reporters for each esta* 
blishmcBt ia thus maintained, and the process of writing from their notes 
never intermpted till an account of the whole debates of the evening 
has been committed to the hands of the printer. There are only seven 
pnblicationa for which a Reporter is constantly in attendance, and these 
include the London morning newspapers, flrom which all others that 
give debates are under the necessity of copying or abridging them. The 
number of Rejlbrters maintained by each varies from ten or eleven to 
sevimteeB or eighteen. They are for the most part gentlemen of liberal 
education— many having graduated at the Universities of Oxford, Cam- 
bridge, Edinburgh, Glasgow, or Dublin ; and they must all possess a 
competeikt knowledge of the multifarious subjects which come under the ' 
connderation of Parliament. The expedition and ability with which their 
datienaie perfcamed must be admitted by every one who attends a deUte 
and afterwards reads a newspaper, while the correctness and rapidity 
with vhlfih their manuscript is pat in type and printed, has long been » 


subject of surprise and admiration. Mr. Shell's speech on the Income 
Tax (March 1st, 1845), coirfainsthe following passage :—" What cau be 
more nnjnst than to impose the same Tax upon a man whose income is 
derived from his intellectual toil— which may be called the sweat of his 
mind — and upon the man whose income is as stable as the earth on which 
we tread? can there be a greater injustice than to tax, in the same propor- 
tion, the first T.ord of the Treasury and the gentlemen who report his 
speech on the Income Tax in the gallery of this House? There are men in 
that gallery of liberal education, and df minds embelUslied with every 
literary adornment, who, by great labour, by great wear and tear of body 
and miud, acquire an income which falls within the range of the tax, 
although it is far from being commensurate with the ability or the useful- 
ness of a class to which some of the first men in England have belonged.''

ORDER.— By this word is meant an obedience to certain regulatlons'which 
are intended to facilitate the dispatch of businessj and preserve decorum In 
public deliberations. The rules by which the business of the Houses of 
Parliament is conducted are of two kinds, one class they potsess In com. 
nion with all public assemblirS) another is peculiar to themselves (aee 
Speaker, duties of, as also Order in the Lords). For the proper application 
or these rules, tt has been found necessary that some oflScer should be ap- 
pointed, to whose decision deference will be paid. Such an officer i* the 
Chairman or Speaker. In the House of Commons (though the practice In the 
Lords is otherwise), he takes no part in debate, his duty being to regtilate the 
manner in which business khall be transacted ; to confine those who address 
the House to the real subject under discussion } to pronounce an opinion upon 
any thiqg^ relating to order ; to put the matter in dispute into the form of a 
q«estion^ on wld^h the votes of the body at large may be taken ; to announce 
the decision of th^ majority { to declare the proceedings of the assembly closed 
at the completion of the business of the day, and to see that they are pr<^ierly 
recorded. The first act of\he*Member who prertdcs is to i^.tlnuite that busU 
ness should commence, which Is done by calling on the individual whose 
motion stands first on the list of notices, or who is others ise" entitled to pre. 
cedence. A motion being made, it is necessary that It should be seconded, 
else it fiills to the ground. This done, the terms of tlte motion are hftnded In 
writing to the Chairman, who reads tbem aloud. Objections may then be 
taken. Amongst the several modes of opposing a motion, are the following— 
a direct negative, an amendment, a postponement, proceedmg to "the other 
orders,'' moving *< the previous question," or an ai^ournment. A motion 
vhlch has been moved, seconded, and read, becomes a sort of property of tha 
^hole body, and cannot be wUhdrawn without leave. If no ol^tor to m

tution of honours ;— with the House of Commons all bills relating to the 
public Income and expenditure* and all other measures that can properly 
come within the class of ** money bUls." Bills affectiog the royal prerogatltre 
are not uauaUy introduced into cither House irithout the previous consent 
of the Crown. It is consldeied unconstitutional for one House to take the

PARLIAMENT.— The Commons are not the Parliament, neither are the 
Lords nor the Crown} but the three united are the ** Estates,'* which In 
th^ triple capacity constitute the Parliament, and exercise the legislative 
functions of the realm. A peer is of course as much a memt)er of Parlia- 
ment as a commoner, while the Crown is a whole estate of Parliament 
centered in tbe person of an individual. The two Houses convened by 
royal aathority, and acting Jointly with the Crown, conatitute the Legisla. 
tore or Parliament \ and its acts are called indifferently « Statutes** or « Acts 
of Parliament >*' they have the full force and effbct of law. (See " Bills,** as 
also ** E»tate of Parliament**) The power of Fferliament is held to be tran. 
scendent, and subject to no limitation whatever. An Act of Parliament binds 
every suli|ect,and even the Sovereign, when specially named therein ; and no 
Authority less than that of PUrliAment can dispense with or abrogate a statute. 

PEERS OF PARLlAMENT^The Peerage of Great RriUin and Ireland 
may be described as consisting of the following parts i the reader, howerer, 
ahottld bear in mind that every individual peerage has a locality, no matter 
with what part of the empire the existing possessor may otherwise be con- 
nected. There are, in the first phice, the Peers of England t Sndly, those of 
Scotland I Srdly, those of Ireland | 4tbly, those of the United Kingdom ; and,

The sUtement of grievance must then follow} and the whole must

writing on parchment or on paper, firee from erasures or interlineations, and 
composed In English, or accompanied by a translation, which the presenting 
member certifies to be correct ; but no letters, affidavits, or other documents, 
can be annexed. Petitions are unilbrmly rejected if not respectful and tem- 
p erate in language, free from imputations upou the character and conduct of 
Parliament, the Courts of Justice, or otber constituted authorities. No refer- 
ence is permitted to any delwtes, or to any motions lupposed to be in ptepa.

The presenting meml)er is expected to examine whether these conditions have 
been complied with, and the Committee on Public Petitions subieipiantty 
subject all those documents to a severe scrutiny.

PRIVILEGES OF PARLIAMENT.— These are of three kinds: lst,theprl. 
▼Ueges which appertain to members individually ; 2nd, those which belong 
to elUier House in its collective capacity t 3rd, those of both Houses Jolntlr. 
Trom wen known precedents it appears that the Lords and Commons, 
acting concurrently, can aasiune the supreme power whenever the throne 
is vacant, or the Sovereign incapable of exercising the royal functions, as 
happened at the Bevolution in 1688; in 1783, when the sovereign authority- 
was oflbred to the Prince of Wales, though George III recovered so speedily 
that a regency became unnecessary { in 1812, when a restricted regency 
was appointed i and, subsequently, when the restrictions were removed. 
The separate privUeges of either House are extensive, but they are, at the 
same tbne, uncertain and indefinite. Amongst those privileges are the power 
of commltUng Individuals to prison, the power of pubUshing matters which,- 
If not issuing flrom such high authority, might become the subject of proceed. 
Ings in a court of law, the power of directing the Attomey-General to prosecute 
persons accused of oflbnces against the laws, or afleCting the privilege of Par- 
liament, and, finally, a power vested in each House reipectively of doing any 
thing not directly contravening an Act of Parliament— which may be necessary 
T the vindication or protection of itself in the exercise of its own constltu. 
lal functions. In the daUy proceedings of Parliament questions of privilege 
precedence of all other business. The privileges of individual membera 
^tettament are freedom of speech and person, including flwedom from legal 
istiand lelBures under process from the courts of lawor equity; this, how* 


ever, dees not extend to indictable oOfencea, to actual contempts of the courts 
of Justice* or to proceedings in banliruptcy. Members of Parliament are 
exempt from serving the office of sheriff, from obeying subpoenas, and serving 
(» Juries. Every member can introduce one person to the strangers' gallery. 
** Privilege of Parliament '* continues to Peers at all times, and to Commoners 
for a ** convenient" time after prorogation and dissolution. Peers are entitled 
to be present at the coronation of the Sovereign, but places were never pro- 
vided for the Commons at that ceremonial until the reign of William IV. Peers 
cannot l>e outlawed in any civil action, nor can any attachment lie against 
their persons ; they are exempt from attending courts leet, or the posse-comU 
tatus } when arraigned for any criminal offence, it must be before their peers, 
vbo return a verdict, not upon oath, but upon lionour ; they have the privi. 
lege of sitting covered in courts of Justice i they may vote in Parliament by

QUESTION.— See Order. **" *-"— 

ROYAL ASSENT.— The act by which the Crown agrees to a bill which 
has already passed both Houses is called ** The Royal Assent," which may 
be given by the Sovereign in person robed, crowned, and seated on the 
throne in the House of Lords, the Commons standing at the bar: or the 
royal assent may be given by commissioners appointed by the Crown for 
that special purpose and for the single occarion. The forms ol)served in Irath 
cases do not vary, and are as follow:— The Lords being assembled in their 
own House, the Sovereign or the Commissioners seated, and the Commons 
at tlie bar, the titles of the several bills which have passed both Houses are 
read, and the King or Queen's answer is declared by the clerk of the Parlia- 
ments in Norman French. To a bill of supply the assent is given in the 
following words :— '< Le roy for, la reine) remerete Met loyal tubjecttt aecepte 
leur bentvotenee et aitui le eeirf." To a private bill it is thus declared :— *< SoH 
fait eomme U est dairi.'* And to public general bills it is given in these 
terms :— *• r,e roy for, la reine) U veut.** Should the Sovereign refuse his 
assent, it is in the gentle language of ** Le roy for, la ritne) s'avttera *." As 
sets of grace and amnesty originate with the crown, the clerk expressing the 
gratitude of the subject addresses the throne as follows :— ^< Lei prilattt 
uigfuurs, et commoTUj en ce preeent Parliament atsemblii au nom de tout

tion should hare been specially appointed. 

SEIUEANT AT ARM&— Of officers bearing this title, there are several ; 
some are attached to the Court of Chancery ; but there are two appointed by 
the Crown to attend the Houses of Parliament, and each has a deputy. In 
the House of Lords, the practical maintenance of decorum below the bar, 
near the throne, and in the gallery, devolves upon the gentleman and yeoman 
usher, with their assistants, so that " the Serjeant at Arms attending the 
House of Lords" has less conspicuous duties to perform than those which 
devolve upon ** the Serjeant attending the House of Commons ;" both, how- 
ever, execute the commands of the House to which thty belong, as regards 
the apprehension or custody of all persons committed by order of Parliament. 
In the House of Commons, the Serjeant at Arms is an officer of considerable 
Importance, enjoying large emoluments, assisted by a deputy and several 
subordinate officers; during the sittings of the House he occupies a chair 
below the bar, 'and he directs a large proportion of the arrangements con- 
nected with the maintenance of order In the approaches to the House and 
the offices adjacent. He is at once the executive and the ceremonial officer 
of the lower House ; but his discretionary powers are not extensive, for 
almost all his more important duties are performed under the immediate 
direction of the House itself, communicated through the Speaker. Hie 
oiiice is usually held by a gentleman of the military profession, seldom under 
the rank of a field officer. 

SESSION.— The tem^ session, applied to the sittings of any public assembly, 

would be generally understood to signify the period during which they sat 

wlttiout any intermission or recess } but in Parliamentary language it has a 

more extendve signiflcatlon. Unless Parliament be prorogued, the session 

is not closed. The Houfe of Commons takes care to limit to onA year the 

duration of certain acts of Parliament, such as the Mutiny Act, all statutes 

authorising the levy of taxes, &c., without which the Government of the 

country could not be carried on, and the Crown, therefore, is compelled to 

resort to an annual assemblage of Parliament, which usually takes place in 

the beginning of February, though S|«cial circumstances may sometimes lead 

') the appointment of an earlier period. Fourteen days at least, but generally 

"ty or forty days previous to the intended meeting, a proclamation is 

ed by the Crown, commanding the attendance of the Lords and Commons, 

Illy at Westminster { but it may be at any place within the United King.^ 

I. The Houses being assembtodf the Sovereign meets them in the House 

lords, and delivers a speech. In this manner does a session commence. 


ne c tr c uuM ttmce of rtttier or both Houmm adjoumtng their ttttlngit whether 
vith, or wftlioat the recommendatton of the Crowny does not terminate the 
session. To etBact that, there must be an actual prorogation under a nqral 
comndnlon, or brthe Sorereign in penon. The progreca which a meanire 
mikes in one aeuion, does not influence its poeition in the next* or in any 
other i for if not completed previouf to the prorogation of Parliamenty It 
must in any following session be commenced de novo. Tbe mere assemblage 
and prorogation are not however suflRcient of themselves to constitute a 
session, imless one bill, at least, have passed both Houses, and receiTed the 
Boyal assent. The business usually tra n sa ct ed on the first day of every 
sesdoa is to take Into considenition the speech flrom the throne s but for 
<*fann sake," one bin always receives a first reading, in order, it is said, to 
assert a right in the Parliament of not brtng obliged to give precedence to the 
subjects contained in the rcqral speech. In the year 1763, in 1817, and on 
nrioos other occasions, the consideration of tbe King's speech has been 
delayed by discussions on other sul^ts, but generally the practice is to 
proceed with it at five o'clock in the afternoon, namely, in about two hours 
after the speech has been delivered. The usual duration of the session is from 
Fdiruary to August ; but no number or length of adjournments destroys its 
continuity. In the year 1621, the House of Commons aiyoumed its sittings 
for five months} but yet it was held that the session bad not terminated. (See 
Jatemiption of the S&ttings of Parliament.)

Amongst the duties of the Speaker are the following }~To read to the Sove- 
reign petitions or addresses from the Commons, and to deliver, in the Royal 
presence, whether at tbe Palace or in tbe House of Lords, such speeches-as 
sie usually made on behalf of the Commons t to manage in the name of the 
House, where counsel, witnesses, or prisoners, are at the bar ; to reprimand 
persons who have incurred the displeasure of the House } to issue warrants 
of committal or release for breaches of privilege, to communicate in writing 
with any parties, wlien so instructed by the House} to exercise vigilance in 
reference to private bills, especially with a view to protect property in general, 
or the rights of individuals, from undue encroachment or injury ( to express 
the thanks or approbation of the Commons to distinguished personages } to 
controul and regulate the subordinate ofiicers of the House } to entertain tbe 
members at dinner, in due succession, and at stated periods } to adjourn .th<- 
Houae at four o'clock, if forty members be not present (#te A4}oununent) - 

are the same u thow of any other President of a deHberatire assembly. (See 
Order.) When Parliament is about to be prorogued, it is customary for the 
Speaker to address to the Sovereign, in the House of Lords, a speech, re. 
capitulating the proceedings of the session. 

-chosen by the House of Commons from amongst its own members, subject to 
the approval of the Crown, and holds his office till the dissolution of the 
-Parliament in which he was elected. His salary is 6000/. a-year, exclusive of 
a ftimlshed residence. At the end of his official labours he is generally 
rewarded by a peerage, and a pension of 40001. for two lives. He is a member 
of the Privy Council, and entitled to rank aOer Barons. When ftwty members 
are not present, he may adjourn the House without leave (see Adjournment). 
Until the year 1S53, business generally speHking conld not be transacted in 
his absence, though to this rule there was an exception in tiie year 1606, a 
prisoner being released by order of the House during the illness of a Speaker, 
in Angust 185:), however, it was re. olved that daring the unavoidable 
absence of the Speaker, the Chairman of Committees of the \vhole House 
shoald preside in his stead. Should a member persevere in breaches of order, 
the Speaker may ** name " him, as it is called, a course unifbrmly followed by 
the censure of the House. In extreme cases the Speaker may order members 
or others into custody until the pleasure of the House be signified (see Com- 
mittals). On divisions, when tlie numbers happen to be equal, he gives the 
casting voice, but he never otherwise votes. 

SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE OF LORDS.- The Lord ChanceUor is the 
keeper of the great seal, and by virtue of that office he becomes on the hare 
deUvery of the seal to him by the Sovereign, Speaker of the House of Lords. 
He is usually, but not necessarily a peer. There has always been a Deputy 
Speaker, and formerly there were two or more; but since the year 1851 there 
ha^ been only one. The Chairman in Committees generally fills this office 
(see Chairnuui of Committees of Commons). In the absence of the Lord 
Oiancellor and of the Depul!y Speaker, it is competent to the House to 
appoint any noble Lord to take the woolsack. The Speaker is the organ or 
mouthpiece of the House, and it therefore is his duty to represent their 
Lordships in their collective capacity when holding intercourse with other 
public bodies or with indlvidCials. He has not a casting vote upon divisions, 
fbr should the numbers prove equal, the not contents prevail. (See Speaker of 
the, House of Commons, Duties of, JPrivileges oL) The Deputy Speaker of 
the Lords is appointeB by the Crown. (See Order, h also Order In the Lords.) 

SUPPLY (COMMITTEE OF)^— All proceedings which relate to the public 
income or expenditure, must originate with the House of Commons, and the 
initiatire to the latter consists of resolutions mored in a Committee of 
^PPl7» which is always a Committee of the whole House. In the course 
of the session, estimates are submitted to a Committee of Supply, and resolu. 
tions moved therein, granting to the Crown the sums requisit*i for defiraying 
the expense attendant upon the various branches of the public service. Those 
resolutions having been considered and disposed of, such amongst them as 
may be affirmed, are reported to the House, reconsidered, and adopted or 
rejected. Under authority of those to which the House agree, the Lords of 
tile Treasury issue the requisite fUnds ibr carrying on the service of the 
country. At the end of the session, the supply resolutions are consolidated 
in the Appropriation Bill, which is sent up to the Lords, and being there 
cffiisidered and decided on, receives the Royal assent, and becomes law. The 
Lords may reject this or any other money bill ; but it would be considered an 
iovation of the privileges of the Commons if their Lordships were sub. 
itantially to modify measures of this class ; the Commons, however, do not 
object to consider any verbal emendations which may be made by the other 
House. Befjre any bill can be introduced, authorising expenditure of public 
money, resolutions must be moved in Committee of Supply, agreed to there, 
reported, and confirmed by the House. 

THRE£ MONTHS (THIS DAY).— See Avoidance of a Decision. 

VACATING SEATS.— See ChUtern Hundreds. 

WATS AND MEANS (COMMITTEE OF)^— As the Committee of Supply 
(which see) relates to the expenditure of the nation, so the functions and 
duties of a Committee of Ways and Means, have reference to the funds by 
vhich such expenditure is to be sustained. Loans, duties, taxes, tolls, re- 
venue and imposts of every description, are submitted to a Committee of 
Way* and Means (which is always one of the whole House). The pro- 
positions of Government on these subjects are reduced to the form of resolu- 
tions, considered, decided on } and such as are agreed to, reported to the 
House. Those which may be there adopted are embodied into bills, and in 
due course become law. As in the case of supply, the Lords in^y reject, but 
cannot modify j neither can their Lordships insert pecuniary penalties in any 
L4t wliatcvcir.
